Many different issues can cause peripheral nerve compression in your lower limbs. It exists whenever one of the nerves in your feet, ankles or legs becomes trapped or pinched, impairing its ability to function properly. The tissues can be compressed by a traumatic or an overuse injury, swelling in the surrounding tissues, a tumor, a biomechanical problem, or an inherited disorder. The long nerves that run through “tunnels” of bone and connective tissues are particularly prone to this problem. If one of your nerves does become compressed, it is extremely important that you have the condition treated right away to avoid permanent complications. Don’t wait and simply hope pain, tingling, or numbness in your feet will go away with time.
